Principal's Message

Welcome, Wildcats!
Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year! This is an exciting time for Westport Community Schools. While there has been a lot of change within the district, it is extremely thrilling to see the opening of a brand new building and the reformation of Westport Middle School! I am ecstatic to be working alongside the families and staff of Westport Middle School in supporting the educational, social, and emotional needs of students in Grades 5-8.

The mission of the Westport Middle School is to educate all students to become 21st century learners, to seek and value knowledge, and to emerge as productive citizens in a global community. I hold all students to high expectations for their individual success and commitment to the school’s mission statement while fostering an inclusive Wildcat community. I encourage all students to invest themselves in what Westport Middle School has to offer, both in terms of academics and extra-curricular activities. I look forward to
witnessing all the great happenings in our classrooms, on the athletic fields, and within our plethora of school clubs and organizations!

I feel strongly that education is a collaborative effort between families and the school community, and open communication is critical for a student’s success. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me with any questions or concerns regarding your children.

On behalf of the entire Westport Middle School administration and staff, I wish everyone   a happy and healthy school year. Go Wildcats!

Assistant Principal Message

Greetings Parents, Guardians, and Wildcat Students,

My name is Sean Persico, and I am thrilled to be the new Assistant Principal at Westport Middle School! Working alongside Mrs. Charette and our district leadership team this summer has been an exciting journey as we get ready for the 2021-2022 school year, and I cannot wait to meet our students, families, and community members in the fall.

Much like Mrs. Charette, I hold all students to high expectations for their individual success and commitment to the school’s mission statement while fostering an inclusive Wildcat community. The two of us intend to provide a safe, meaningful education for our students that fosters grit, perseverance, and accountability. I believe that all students can succeed, and I am determined to ensure that our students have a positive experience at Westport Middle School.

Open and honest communication is a crucial component of student success. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have. I look forward to an inspiring school year full of new experiences for our students. Go Wildcats!

This self-evaluation is to be completed annually to ensure that all students, regardless of race, color, sex, gender identity, religion, national origin, limited English proficiency, sexual orientation, disability, or housing status, have equal access to all programs, including athletics and other extracurricular activities. Your feedback regarding these matters is critically important, and will be used in the development of a plan to address any identified areas of focus.

Middle School Field Trips:

  • One of our 5th Grade Classes visited the Dunes Field located at Cherry and Webb beach. The beach's dunes protect the salt marshes that attract all sorts of shorebirds that can be found in the area. Students explored this natural habitat as they walked through the Cherry & Webb Conservation Area. The students were beyond excited and were on their best behavior! What a great experience for all. Thank you all who made this possible!  

Mr. Pacheco's 8th grade were tasked with building a wheeled contraption that would launch from a ramp and hopefully roll a total distance of 24 feet. The wheeled contraptions were time checked at 8 feet, 16 feet, and 24 feet. The students will be calculating and analyzing the speed for each of the time-checked points. The students will then use the data to construct speed graphs and compare their performance with their classmates.

It was awesome!

  • Recently, students in Ms. Pereira's classroom at Westport Middle School visited the Blue Hills Weather Observatory as an extension of a Weather Unit they are doing this year.  Students learned first hand about various weather instruments used today and how to engineer a kite! Before their return, they were able to fly the kites at the top of the hill and had a great time!  Thank you to Blue Hills for a great outing experience!
